Dom & Dumber: The Sketch Comedy Magicians Gone Girl

Returning with their critically acclaimed sophomore show, this award-winning duo combine hilarious sketch comedy with modern magic.

Boasting a colourful cast of characters, Gone Girl takes you on a shameless parody of Hollywood suspense, following one man and the perilous quest to save his kidnapped dog. Best described as ‘Harold & Kumar’ meets ‘Taken’, you can expect a fast-paced genre mashup of theatrical comedy and psychological thriller, sautéed with a dash of David Copperfield.

Having most recently enjoyed a sold-out season as part of the Melbourne Magic Festival, Gone Girl returns for a strictly limited season as part of Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2018. So if you enjoy sketch comedy, cinematic productions and/or baffling illusions, grab your tickets today and prepare for one of the most creative and immersive shows of the Festival.

'Best theatrical magic show I have seen yet! A show bursting with comedy, movie references and plenty of surprises and magic. I left wanting more.'

'A work of excitement with fantastical props and wickedly mystifying illusions… never a dull moment on stage… not to be missed.'
